New Custom Home—Quail West

During the building process we hired an inspector to review the workmanship on a monthly basis and there was never an issue with any of the inspections. We moved into our home in August 2014 and have been enjoying the beautiful workmanship. If we had to start over again, we would go right back to Diamond Custom Homes. It was a pleasure working with them.


Diamond Custom Homes built our dream home in Quail West. We interviewed several builders and decided to go with DCH based on their stellar track record throughout Naples building beautiful homes. We are ecstatic with the result. Also, Mike Diamond's support team was great during construction as well as after we moved in making sure every detail was attended to in a timely and professional manner. All in all, we have nothing but accolades to share about our Diamond Custom Home.


It is with great pleasure that my wife Laura and I recommend Diamond Custom Homes as a builder for your future home. Starting with Mike Diamond and with the help of his entire staff — the difficult process of of designing and building a custom home was made significantly easier. The Diamond team showed a high level of professionalism and a particular attention to detail. They chose and managed sub-contractors extremely well. Their on-site management team was present everyday, overseeing and ensuring that every job was done with care and precision. When problems or issues arose during and after construction the staff and particularly the onsite manager was quick to respond and all issues were resolved to our satisfaction without hesitation. An overall masterful job — well done!


Diamond Custom Homes has uncompromising integrity. The Diamond team was very professional, very easy to communicate with, and very attentive to details and value. Steve was our on-sight supervisor and he kept an eye on even the tiniest details and made sure they were perfect. George let me know what was going to happen when and kept us on track as far as making design choices. He was delightful to work with. And throughout the process, Mike stayed involved, ensuring our satisfaction through every phase, including after we moved in.

We have been in our home a year now, and love it. Not only do we have a beautiful, well constructed and designed home (close to budget), but Diamond Custom Homes made it a pleasure getting here.

We are always most proud of the appreciation we receive from the clients whose luxury custom homes we build and remodel.

In 2015, we earned the coveted front cover of Home & Design with a feature story inside that highlighted our Capistrano model, itself an award-winning home.
